Clinton stumbles at start of final sprint

Hillary Clinton's fragile presidential bid enters the start of the Labor Day-triggered fall sprint staggered by two enormous blows to her already reeling campaign.

The FBI's report of its investigation of Hillary's illegal server is so full of damning details that it will take a village to recount them. My personal favorite is that 13 Blackberrys and 3 iPads she used as secretary of state are missing. Play "16 Candles" and think of the fact that the FBI's best agent on all things al Qaeda, John O'Neill, left the bureau in 2000 in part because he lost a briefcase with sensitive information in it.

O'Neill died in the World Trade Center attack, and so apparently did bureau concern with losing the containers of information useful to our enemies. (The O'Neill saga, including the briefcase, is told in detail in Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower.)
